If you thought it was cool that the hotel you last stayed in offered jogging maps, then wait until you hear what the Four Seasons Westlake Village is offering--the Ultimate Performance Triathlon Training Camp.
The one-time only camp will run from April 16-20 and it includes a five-day, four-night stay at the luxury hotel, just outside of Los Angeles. Guests will be trained by professional triathlete coaches in a variety of exercises along with some personalized programming at the on-site California Health and Longevity Institute that includes diagnostic testing (VO2 lung capacity tests for example), nutrition consulting and sleep and recovery education.
Previously an Orient-Express hotel, where a Sunday afternoon at La Belle Terrasse is one of our all-time brunch favorites, we can expect a new spa, two new restaurants, and a new bar in addition to the redesign of all guestrooms and suites.
If this is a little too bold for your tastes, perhaps you prefer the more subtle way of incorporating the print in the window treatments as seen below, which also shows how different the color schemes and decoration between the various room types will be.

Usually major metropolitan areas are where you’ll find every hotel brand under the sun close together, but in a few years’ time there might be a very unlikely contender for having one of the largest concentrations of different hotel brands in the world: a master development in Portugal, roughly 50 miles south of capital Lisbon.
If one day a reality, we couldn’t name anywhere else that boast hotels from Hilton, Marriott, Four Seasons, Park Hyatt, Raffles, Fairmont, Aman, and Six Senses, all cosily together on the peninsula across the water from Setúbal and further down the Alentejo coastline – yet that is what the above map calls for.
Exactly what you want to see after a long flight to Hawaii.
In today's extremely competitive luxury hotel market, high-thread counts, personal assistants, and in-room dining menus from Michelin-starred chefs simply won't cut it anymore. Airport Lounges, however, will set you apart from the other five-stars out there. And that's just what the Four Seasons Resorts Lania (which includes Manele Bay and The Lodge at Koele) has done at the Honolulu International Airport.
Located in the commuter terminal, the 1,000-sq.ft. luxury lounge allows guests special treats and amenities while waiting for their quick flight to Lanai (it's about 25 minutes.) That includes food, beverages, iPads, Wi-Fi access, charging stations, luggage holding areas, magazines, newspapers, and HDTVs. There will also be a lounge concierge on hand to assist with check-in, activity arrangements and restaurant reservations.
And since guests will be arriving at various terminals in the Honolulu airport, the Four Season Lounge can arrange a "Concierge Transfer" from Island Air which will pick guests up at their arriving terminal and either walk or drive them over to the Four Seasons Lounge.

At this point, Chicagoans are so over winter (and we still have 40 days to go.) Local spas are rising to the occasion with new treatments that do more than just pamper. If you're not down for swimming laps, check out these three services that combine plush bathrobes and tranquil settings with serums, gels, and rituals meant to clear bad energy. Let the healing begin.
CHUAN SPA AT LANGHAM CHICAGO can give you a fresh start to the year, if you have three hours—and $525—to spare. Available through February 28, The Chinese New Year Rejuvenation Package includes a bamboo-and-seasame body buff, a ginger-wasabi detox body wrap, and a massage that incorporates an orchid-and-pearl cream. Afterwards, try fresh fruits pair fresh fruits paried with soothing teas during the Chuan Signature Elemental Tea Service. Guests leave with a personalized Chinese New Year Fortune.
Four Seasons Hotels has 14 new hotels opening in the next few years, chief among them are The Four Seasons at Disney World, The Four Seasons Seoul (the first FS for Korea), and the Four Seasons New York in Tribeca. Yet there's another project of interest growing in Florida--The Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club.
Founded in 1930 by Harvey Firestone, The Surf Club was once a private membership club, just north of Miami, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Its original building by Russell Pancoast still stands today. But when it re-opens in early 2016, the historic structure will have 80 Four Seasons luxury hotel rooms. Surrounding that, will be two, 12-story towers designed by award-winning architect Richard Meier which will have 150 Four Seasons private residences and penthouse apartments. This will actually be Meier's first project in the Miami area. Fort Capital, a Miami-based private real estate investment company, is the developer behind the project.
The Surf Club will keep its private membership club but will add two restaurants, four swimming pools, a spa and fitness center and more than 40 beach cabanas. With all these exclusive luxury amenities, you can be assured that room rates will cost a pretty penny, especially in high season.

For those who have recently stayed at the FS Philly or who read our coverage about its killer view of Logan Circle, the word “upgrade” might come as a surprise. Currently, you can see all the way down the Ben Franklin Parkway to the Art Museum from many west-facing rooms.
But sources within Philly tell us that the property has “grown stale” after over 30 years, and needs a boost to continue to compete with the city’s booming Center City hotel market, including its luxurious competitors, the Rittenhouse Hotel and the Ritz Carlton, as well as the up and coming midmarket properties in and around Rittenhouse Square and City Hall (like the Kimpton Palomar, for example).

While "The Bachelor's" current
clown stud, Juan Pablo, is about to jet off to Seoul with his harem of women on the ridiculous reality dating show that you can't not watch, the last Bachelor, Sean Lowe is about to say "I Do" on live television to his scriptedtrue love, Catherine Giudici. Not surprisingly, the wedding will take place at a hotel--Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara
Here's what Catherine said about the planned nuptials:
"The beach is so pretty and the venue is just gorgeous!' said Catherine. 'It will be just the two of us, on the beach. Chilling out and having a great time."
Yes, just the two of you on the beach and MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WATCHING AT HOME.
That said, she is right about the hotel being a gorgeous venue as the hotel has five different, outdoor spots where folks can get married. While Sean and Catherine will get hitched on the beach, the resort also allows for weddings in various gardens and lawns, including the Monte Vista Lawn where the Santa Ynez mountains serve as a backdrop.

It’s Monday morning and there is tons of hotel news flying around, so to get the week off to a good start we have the latest for you from Philadelphia to Bermuda and Indianapolis to Kuala Lumpur.
The debate on which Philadelphia hotel has the best view we think may permanently shift in a few years’ time, with the announcement that Comcast is building a second skyscraper – 59 stories tall – that will house a new Four Seasons Hotel on its top fifteen floors. Furthest up is the above top-floor restaurant, in what we assume is one of 13 three-story “sky gardens” the building will feature. Located at 18th and Arch, it will be the tallest building in Philadelphia, and the tallest in the United States outside New York and Chicago.
We’d heard already that Four Seasons Hotels was moving in on the burgeoning market, but more details on what that might look like are starting to appear: Bloomberg is reporting that the Canadian group is looking at up to five properties: two in Sao Paulo, one in capital Brasilia and a resort in Pernambuco (more on that later), and in Rio de Janeiro possibly in the classic Hotel Glória, built in 1922 for the International Exhibition and being sold by embattled billionaire Eike Batista.

Starting on August 3, two adults and two children can spend the night in a Golden Oak View room for *just* $645 a night. You also have the option of choosing one king bed or two double beds. There's also a queen-size sofa bed in the room and a crib can be placed in the room as well.
Lake and park view rooms cost a little bit more at $695 and $795 a night, respectively. If 500-sq.ft. isn't enough space, the Golden Oak suite can be booked for $1,050 a night which has a separate sitting area. (Most rooms, if not all, have their own furnished balconies from which you can gaze out at the Disney World and other parks.)
That price might sound a little steep for a family vacay but the hotel is running a "Stay Longer" offer which will give you a third night free if you book two consecutive nights. While we're not quite ready to brave Orlando in the August heat, that's quite a tempting offer for a new Four Seasons in Disney World.

This Sunday, the 2014 Awards Season kicks off in Los Angeles with the 71st Golden Globes Awards ceremony (hosted by lovely ladies Tina Fey and Amy Pohler.) As they have been for more than 50 years, the Golden Globes will be held at the Beverly Hilton. But the Hilton isn't the only spot in town to go for some celeb-
Popping into the Four Seasons Los Angeles, the Peninsula Beverly Hills or the Beverly Hills Hotel will also increase your chances of seeing a star (hopefully, not a reality one.)
Yet there's an even better way to enjoy awards season without appearing like an over-eager fan but while still feeling like a part of the Hollywood movie-making magic --by indulging in a tasteful viewing party at the The Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Hotel.
Starting with the Golden Globes this weekend and concluding with the Oscars on March 1st, the Beverly Wilshire will be hosting soirees in their BLVD bar and have partnered with Moet & Chandon Champagne to provide the bubbly. The full schedule is below. For table reservations, call (310) 385 3901. Need a room? The hotel has rooms available on Sunday for $615 a night which is actually pretty average for a Beverly Hills hotel during awards season.
